Victoria Building Mugs

Victoria County commissioners meet in the Victoria County Courthouse at 115 N. Bridge St.

Victoria County commissioners Monday will receive a recommendation for a bid to tackle the mold in the Victoria County Jail.

The proposal selection committee for the jail remediation plan will present the recommendation for the bid to the court Monday.

At the June 3 meeting, commissioners received bids from companies to resolve the mold issue, a step forward in the county’s jail remediation plan.

The plan was produced after the jail was found consistently not up to standards regarding the health and safety of people who work and are detained there.

The court read three bids: Gerloff Company Inc. in San Antonio for $76,039.42 with a timeline of 47 days of work; ServiceMaster Restoration by Century in San Antonio for $109,539 with a timeline of 30 days; and Servpro of Northwest San Antonio for $214,000 with a timeline of 60 days.

A fourth bid was kept closed because it was submitted after the deadline.

According to the meeting agenda, the selection committee will recommend pursuing a contract with Gerloff Company Inc.

The remediation plan timeline lists the jail should be in compliance and ready for re-inspection by the end of October.

Also Monday, the court will receive a recommendation for a bid for the Nursery Road Rehabilitation project in Precinct 2.

The court received bids for the project at the May 28 meeting. The project is designed to redo three miles on Nursery Road that are in bad shape and see a lot of traffic, County Commissioner Kevin Janak said previously.

According to the agenda, the recommendation to the court will be to award the project to Tierra Lease Service in Kenedy, a bid for $194,237 with a 60 day timeline to complete.

The other bids are from Brannan Paving Company in Victoria, which costs $221,597 and will take 240 days to complete, and from Rexco Inc. in Port Lavaca, which costs $295,998 and will take 180 days to complete.
